Talking Bull: What do you have to do for the ACC to fine you?

Finefree_medium Things we know you can do in the ACC and get away with it:

ACC vote to fine North Carolina Tar Heels comes up short
The NCAA Committee on Infractions announced in March that it found North Carolina had committed academic fraud, allowed impermissible agent benefits, played ineligible players and failed to monitor the program. The NCAA placed the North Carolina football program on probation for three years, banned it from the postseason this fall, and penalized the Tar Heels five scholarships per year for each of the next three years.

So if you're an ACC program you can play ineligible players, allow agents to get way the heck too close to the program, and make up joke courses for players (then change their grades when they cant pass those). The NCAA might bring down the hammer on you but in a fine academic institution like the ACC we will let this slide.

Gas station snacks! Really? You're throwing away free college for snacks for some zingers and an iced tea?

Tatman_medium_jpg_medium_mediumWhen we last left our hero:

Ever see someone try to do "the right thing" and in the middle of it take a horribly wrong turn?

Terrelle Pryor says he accepted money for memorabilia to help family, according to report - ESPN
"It was humbling," Pryor told Sports Illustrated. "A mistake I made when I was a freshman by selling my pants for $3,000 just took away everything from me.

...

"The reason why I did it was to pay my mother's gas bill and some of her rent,"

So when you're humble you decide to minimize what you did, point at others, and say they "They did it too"?

1) You sold more than one pair of pants for 3K

2) You also got tats with it! I don't care what receipts you manufacture you sold tons of things including your "sportsmanship award", your championship rings....

Just cop to what you did, explain that maybe it started because you were helping your family but grew bigger than that. I'd have more respect for a reformed Terrell Pryor than one who is still ducking and weaving a s candle that cost people their jobs and humiliated an entire team.
